Arrow Life After the Oil Crash

An interesting link:
http://www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net/Introduction.html

Could it be the truth many are not willing to know about?

Scare people with any plausible scenario and they will buy your book in droves. We've had multiple collapse economy tales, ebola plagues, global warming, multiple Chernobyls, rise of the right, rise of the left, demise of the center, AIDS, you name it. Lots of books were sold on each topic and we're all still here.

Ahhh... I see. You are still here. Good!
For how long? Your children?
Typical example of thinking for today, not carring about the future and probably driving a 10mpg car along a class a amp that sucks 1kW @ idle.
Thank you.

PS: How much do you think the oil reserves will last? 100 years?

Julian Simon vs. Paul Ehrlich. Remember who won that bet.

For those who want some details on this:
http://www.capmag.com/article.asp?ID=44

And for you SY:
Quote:
Simon easily won because he knew that the supply for resources was not becoming more scarce but more abundant, since the economic history of predominantly free capitalist nations had demonstrated how the prices of most major commodities have declined over time.
I didn't know the oil was becoming more abundand. Contrary.
Or is this what you meant?

Just read this today :
http://money.cnn.com/2004/05/04/mark...reut/index.htm

Guess the quote from life after the oil crash is spot on!! ;-)

Seriously though...What I like about it ...is that it does not seem to come from a fanatical person...that blames Jews or Wasps or whoever in particular....or at least I have not been able to detect it. And I find it hard to find the ulterior motive (apart from trying to make a quick buck)

SY, here is my offer for you:
We do the same thing that Julian Simon vs. Paul Ehrlich did. Officially in front of a notary with papers etc.
But you have to come here in Europe(if you are not already here).

We consider 1000EUR and we se how many liters oil we could buy with them today. In ten years we will consider how many liters we will be able to buy with this amount.
If in 10 years it will be possible to buy more liters, I will give you 500EUR, otherwise you will give me 500EUR.
(considering the current value of EUR)

Deal?

Don't forget, we drive with our air conditioners "ON"on and the windows open while running over the oppressed here in the USA.
